Policy: Welfare Tracie Salerno CSU – Global PMG300 March 1, 2012 Dr. G ABSTRACT 1 DEFINING A CURRENT POLICY ISSUE 2 ANALYZING THE ISSUE 5 POLICY RECOMMENDATIONS 6 SWOT ANALYSIS 7 ABSTRACT Welfare reform, very controversial and touchy subject for those who think our government is not doing their job in controlling this process. This paper is an over view of what welfare reform is currently in the United States. In addition, how welfare got started and who it was meant to be used for which at that time people on disability, pregnant women and women with children, you will see more then just those groups are getting welfare. Lastly there are some recommendations that are provided that would make welfare a little harder to
This was introduced by the Labour party, who Lewis argues have taken on the idea of ‘social investment in children’ seriously and have realised family forms are changing. The Labour party have introduced a number of laws, attempting to strengthen the family unit. They were mainly concerned on helping the social and economic position of women, for example, marital rape was made illegal in 1991 by the Labour party. The rights of children have also been improved by the labour party due to the children’s act of 1989. New right thinkers however; believe that these laws undermine the traditional male dominance in families, but many believe these new policies for women and children strengthen the family rather than weaken it.
She came up with a bare bones resume and got started. By the end of the book she realized how horribly hard and degrading it is to be a part of the working poor. She believes the government should give more assistance to the “working poor” and others should rally behind getting them better pay. The author is persuading the reader to feel sorry for the people she writes about and to understand their hardships. She seems to have succeeded, but I’m not sure creating more taxes for other families by issuing more government help to these people is the way to do it.
It is obvious that PSS is facing a hard dilemma in adaption to change. PSS could choose to drop its total mission and depend on FSS, the HUD’s new project, to offer the poor families the social welfare, but it is an irresponsible method. So HASCO needs to continue its mission. PSS has successfully helped for hundred motivated families from public assistance and provide universal access to all welfare families rather than just those the program operates define as motivated. i Facing the new policy, as the Director of HASCO, Holt needs to make sure his objectives.
This legacy of discrimination in U.S. drug policy amplifies the burgeoning gap in opportunities available to White youth and youth of color. To correct this discrepancy policies must be enacted that make education a priority over incarceration. Americans are reinforced to believe that individuals are largely in control of their own destiny. We are told that hard work, sacrifice, and personal effort, determines what happens to us. The fundamental institutions of the American society function unfairly, restricting access and opportunity for millions of people.
All the policies and action Obama is taking, will make him transformational in the end. He understands if we keep ignoring problems in our society and keep letting them become bigger, then America could essential be in the worst shape it has ever been. We need major reform and we need it now. Obama is attempting to not make everyone equal, but build up the middle class again. Americans are growing further and further apart when it comes to money, and this is contributing to the major problems like: unemployment, education, and inequality.
Women who are able to keep their jobs, and find a reasonable and affordable childcare facility are impacted by the glass ceiling barrier. If a single woman is considering having another child, not being able to bring home an equal pay for the same work duties a man earns, is a clear example of how the glass ceiling barrier is a penalty for women who have children while working a job. Although the glass ceiling barrier is mainly used for top level positions, it also affects women of all economic levels. “In 2002, American employers paid out over $263 million in sex discrimination lawsuits.” (Murphy and Graff 36) Companies like Wall-Mart in 2007, Home Depot in 1997, and Publix Super Markets in 1997 have all been sued for gender discrimination by numerous female workers, and all have had to settle out of court.

Welfare Reform Welfare reform was first brought about to try and decrease the number of families dependent on public assistance. In 1996 The Welfare Reform Act was passed. Leaders believed that they could put an end to the welfare cycle that was alleged to have begun back in the great depression. The new reform would require families on assistance to work 20 hours per week in exchange for the benefits. In my opinion the Welfare Reform has not improved the poverty situation.
The Fairy Tale In his essay, “The End of Courtship,” Leon R. Kass claims that “people on both the left and right have come to regard the breakup of marriage as a leading cause of neglect, indeed, of the psychic and moral maiming, of America’s children”(224). The high divorce rates in our society are staggering and recognizable; yet we can point out the problem but can’t seem to provide a solution. There are several “deal breakers” in a marriage with many being obvious and some not so obvious; however the relationship problems people face today are no different then what couples faced in the past when divorce was rare and vows of lifetime commitments and family values were worth fighting for. The question we must ask ourselves is
